. democrats were plus-7, when president obama got elected last year. and they were there. last night, when terry mcauliffe won the governorship. if you get presidential election type turnout in virginia, from here on out in all of their elections, republicans will never win again in that state. look specifically at the african-american turnout. when the republicans won that governorship back in 2009, the black turnout was 16%. when president obama was on the ballot last year, black turnout turned up to 20% of the electorate. last night again, black turnout was 20% of the electorate. african-american voters in virginia turned out. even though it was not a presidential year. even though it was an off-off year. and if african-american voters can turn out like that again in every election in virginia, that is a nightmare for the republican party. so yeah, ken cuccinelli lost, and the republicans lost the governorship. both of those are history-defying, bad news, bad bench marks for the republican party. and who turned out, looks bad for virginia republicans not just for last night's race but f

, people at work, people in your neighborhood? who do you trust on obama care? all the coverage out there and everything that's taken place, especially this week. this week has really been a very interesting week. but who do you trust, and what influences you? you know, when i was growing up, there was a lot of news in the '60s. my mom was a high school english teacher, my dad was an aeronautical engineer, he worked for the government at the norfolk naval air base, and when they would come home, we would have dinner. it was pretty traditional back in those days, you know. we sat around the table and watched the evening news. it was walter cronkite. i'll tell you what. my mom and dad, they trusted walter cronkite. i mean, if he said it, that was it. that's the way it was. do you feel that way about peach you watch today? i would like to think that you trust me. certainly, there's no comparison between his accomplishments and mine. that's not where i'm going. what i'm going to is, you know, i want you to trust me. and i want you to know that i have my opinions. but i don't make stuff

delaying obama care, here is an important thing. just the personal tax, the "if i don't seen up" tax is over $300 million a month. the administration now is dealing with a cost of delay that if they did their job right they wouldn't have. that's one of the reasons the president is resisting it. he wants the revenue. he wants you forced into it. if he takes it off he's afraid he won't hit the goals. >> at every level it is an epic failure. this is the health and human services chief information officer, a guy that testified before your committee. congressman chafitz of utah asked how many times he met with sebelius. i want your response to this exchange. >> since the end of august how many times have you personally met with secretary sebelius? >> i'm not sure. probably once or twice. >> when was the last time you met with the secretary? >> i believe that it was during the shutdown. the secretary had regular meetings with senior leadership. >> so you met one time in october? >> i believe so. >> you are the chief information officer. you met one time in october with the secretary. >> ma
with republicans, hurt the republican brand in virginia. it also delayed people being upset about obama care. because had the obama care begun on october 1, the whole debacle of the rollout and the exchanges, you might have had months of ken cucinelli running with twinned at his back, with the national narrative beating up on obama care, cucinelli might have had a great last month, the money might have flowed in, and he might have won. but virginia republicans can blame both the establishment and the tea party i think for this one. it's a real missed opportunity. >> what is the message coming out of that gubernatorial race for both parties? >> there's several messages. they've known ken cucinelli for a decade. i like him a lot. i was rooting for him as well as a conservative certainly. but there are several lessons. one i think is clear happening in the national level clearly impacted what's happening with the local races, right across the potomac from washington, d.c. i do think the shut down hurt him. there are a lot of things along the way. one thing that republicans need to learn. it hap
out to a new republican party. >> it was amazing. there was even a republican who voted for obama who stood up proudly and said that. >> that doesn't happen so much. used to say how many republicans, how many democrats. like in 2009, shield say and how many republicans who voted for obama. and there would be like ten people applauding, be really proud of themselves for being transformative and having the courage to cross party lines and make a difference. that doesn't happen so much anymore. there was one last night, though. >> that's my neighborhood and one your year when my kids were young, saddam hussein and georg bush. saddam got more candy. >> honestly, i don't know how you do this. the night continued over at the may flower with politico, one of their cocktails. and i cannot believe they were in the balconies and you had a great audience. >> do you know what they were asking, where is sam stein not here. >> it will never end. >> but there were a lot of good questions. and the most interesting thing, and i think the rope these crowds are so big is that the timing for the book is
obama builds a legacy of peace. that's causing right wingers to choke. as commander in chief, the president has made it clear that sending troops into harm's way should always be a last resort. that tough diplomacy should always be our first option. for the first time in nearly a decade, iran will freeze. iran has agreed -- inspectors will do the monitoring. in return, the u.s. has agreed to provide iran with relief from sanctions. it could be a first true step towards disarming iran. an advance the president said was made through diplomacy, not tough talk. >> we cannot close the door or diplomacy. we cannot rule out peaceful solutions to the world's problems. we cannot commit ourselves to endless conflict. and tough talk and bluster may be the easy thing to do politically, but it's not the right thing for our security. it is not the right thing for our security. >> there's no doubt this is a complicated issue. some members of both parties have voiced concern. but this deal with iran gets to the heart of what type of leader we have in president obama. he won the nobel peace p
obama said he would do something no president has done since 1979, speak directly to the leaders of iran. it became a central issue of the campaign. >> it's hard to see what such a summit with president ahmadinejad would actually gain except an earful of anti-semitic rants and a worldwide audience for a man who denies one holocaust and talks before frenzied crowds about starting another! >> the conservative media machine jumped on the chance to characterize the young senator as weak. >> but we have a candidate who says we'll talk to the state sponsor of hamas, syria's al assad, and we'll speak to them without condition. >> but obama responded by reiterating his intent to do something that the u.s. had all but abandoned, practice diplomacy. >> if george bush and john mccain have a problem with direct diplomacy led by the president of the united states, then they can explain why they have a problem with john f. kennedy, because that's what he did with khrushchev, or ronald reagan, because that's what he did with gorbachev, or richard nixon, because that's what they did with mao. that's the
>>> mitt romney disavows obama care. is it the same health care plan the former governor sold to massachusetts? i will talk to the architect of both plans in minutes. >>> the president's meeting with the leader of iraq. exactly what kind of military help is that country seeking from the u.s., and will it happen? >>> in office politics, down to its last days? i talked to cnbc's carl quintanilla about the problems with blackberry. >>> and how much money could this work of art fetch? it's in today's list of number ones. >>> hello, everyone. it's high noon here in the east, 9:00 a.m. out west. welcome to "weekends with alex witt." he's back with a whole lot to say. mitt romney on today's "meet the press," talking about the comparisons between romney care in massachusetts and obama care. >> and perhaps the most important lesson the president failed to learn was you have to tell the american people the truth. what when he told the american people you could keep your health insurance if you wanted to keep that plan, period, he said that time and again, he wasn't telling the truth. i
apologize. >> outrage over obama care. >> the only spy. for valid foreign intelligence. >> a spying circus. the president's lowest poll numbers yet. is obama's second term slipping away? has he lost control? what will it take to get it back? this morning the only show where the white house responds. tough questions for the president's top strategist. >>> plus, republican senator rand paul in a "this week" exclusive. >>> and the analyst who nailed it in 2012, reads this year's tea leaves. nate silver makes his "this week" debut on our powerhouse roundtable. and rob lowe. this sunday morning. >>> hello again. one year ago this week, president obama was coasting toward re-election, now he's coming off one of the toughest weeks of his second term. let's start out with our chief white house correspondent jon karl. with more on that. you have the obama care, nsa spying controversial and now this new book "double down" shows that winning campaigns aren't pretty on the inside. >> that's right, george. apparently some of the president's top aides leaked so much information to authors of this book.
lying about his own lies. the obama care hearings rage on on capitol hill. >> i will stick by my statement. >> can i finish my sentence? >> as usual there are no answers and no shoogss from this clueless administration. >> i would not be the expert this. >> good afternoon. he has deceived the press and you. >> in response to the united states policy. in response to a video. >> we delivered the definitive indictment against the president's chief spokesman, jay carney. >> i never lie. >> "hannity" starts right here. >> the president of the united states of america is trying the rewrite history tonight for the entire hour. we'll be joined by a spirited bipartisan spirited audience and we'll turn thing over to them. first i want to explain fully to you the american people how the administration will say and do anything to cover for lves. and as one veteran washington journalist aptly described it today, this white house is now lying about lies they told. here's why. last night during a speech, president obama instead of just manning up like a true leader and accepting responsibility
care act. everybody may not love obama but everybody loves affordable. and the -- i love them both. >> a lot of love in that room there. >> yes. >> the first question for you, talking to her, she's speaking to a branding challenge that a lot of democrats have had. they tried to embrace and pump up obama care but beyond the obama piece which she spoke to, isn't it also a problem that deeming it obama care makes it sound like a product rather than what it is, a set of rules and regulations and enter state funding. >> absolutely. also, there was a notion within the white house they should embrace and take the power out of it. but it is definitely turned back against them now that they are not going all over the website, it becomes a product they are being sold. this undercuts a lot of things that happened, they did not do a good job of telling people about the for instance, if you're a kid you can stay on your parents insurance and preexisting conditions and things like that. the law has already been in place and they have done a poor job of saying this is just one small part of this
. >>> president obama's 80% solution to obama care. and a possible political solution to the accountability question. plus senator rand paul joins us for center seat. this is "special report." >>> good evening miami bret baier the obama administration is not denying a report that it would happily take a four out of five approach to declaring the president's health care reform plan a success. but even that relatively modest achievement may not be enough to keep some in the administration from losing their jobs. we have fox team coverage tonight. mike emanuel is on capitol hill with congressional democrats in disarray. jim angle here in the bureau with why the president's most recent offer to fix the program just makes things much worse. but we begin with chief white house correspondent ed henry on the latest efforts by the president to stop the bleeding from obama care. good evening, ed. >> good evening, bret. you remember last week the president vowed to fix his credibility with the american people. he starts tonight on a conference call with organizing for action to try and rally his polit
on "the cycle." >>> we will get to last night's election results shortly. right now president obama is headed to dallas. he plans to thank obama care volunteers trying to he had indicate americans about their option. a quarter of texas residents are uninsured and texas famously declined to accept funding to accept medicaid. today in washington, the white house point person on ensuring the program works, kathleen sebelius was back on the hill. >> users are receiving far fewer error messages and time-outs. and we're now able to process nearly 17,000 reg strants per hour with almost no errors. for millions of americans, delay is not an option. people's lives depend on this. we discussed security as part of the overall operations on a regular basis with the operations team, but no one i would say suggested that the risk outweigh the importance of moving forward. >> let's go right to luke russert in washington. luke, not quite the same fireworks we saw during sebelius's first round of testimony, but what did you make of the oversight there today? >> that's to be expected. the senate is t
there will be another war over obama care. >> these aren't the droids you're looking for. >> and the winner of that war will be the side that tells the truth, and states the facts. >> the winner of the war is going to be the person who tells the truth? say billo, you better tell that to your buddy at 10:00, because he's been lying better than anybody in the business when it comes to health care in this country. you know, last week on this program, i started the segment on this program asking you, who do you trust? who do you trust when it comes to your news? and i told a story about how when i was growing up with walter cronkite, holy smokes, that's the way it was. and "620 minutes" was kind of the same way. boy, have times really changed, huh? question is, who do you trust when it comes to obama care? all the lies and the misinformation have now infiltrated the sunday talking heads. that's right, on sunday, fox news took their misinformation campaign to the next level, with their signature sunday talk show, fox news sunday. heck, hannity could have been anchoring it. chris wallace interviewed two busi
obama won. one year later after a gop autopsy and a vow to rebrand, they haven't learned anything. any moment dozens of senate republicans are expected to vote against a gay rights law that would ban discrimination against gay and lesbian employees in the workplace. that's 39 republicans who didn't get the memo. why? because they haven't learned anything. what about women's rights? republican senator lindsey graham is now launching a new fight against a woman's right to choose. calling for a 20-week abortion ban. >> i've been a pro-life member of congress since day one. i'm proud to lead this charge. >> todd akin was once proud to lead this charge. how'd that work out? again, they haven't learned anything. and this extreme ideology is particularly bad. look at virginia. the republican candidate for governor ken cuccinelli is as far right as they come. he thinks same-sex relationships are immoral, wants to ban abortions with no exception, and once said it's possible the president was born in kenya. and he's plunging in the polls. 12 points behind. so why is that? president obama was in
obama care. we don't want more big government. >> don't vote against your own interests. >> there is a certain amount of pushback that needs to happen, because of tea party activities. >> this is a referendum on obama care. >> ahh! >> want to go back, you want to say you are no longer covered any longer. >> we want more leaders like your next governor, ken cuccinelli. >> we're voting against cuccinelli for the governor's position. >> i want synchro nicety in government. ken cuccinelli is not supportive of our president's agenda. >> i'm scared to death of what obama care is doing to virginia virginians. >> nobody likes a cry baby. >> everything they're talking about, it's about undoing the progress. >> grind progress to an absolute halt. >> it's about undoing the progress that the vast majority of the american people think was progress. >> now, we didn't get universal health care, we didn't get the public option. but we got some good things. we moved forward. >> it is the working man's friend, and god bless him. >> i'm ready for round two! i'm ready for round two. >> the
governors and politicians to back off and deal with a crucial component of president obama's health care law, the expansion of educate. we find ourselves with who will win the big outstanding state wide election yet to be determined from tuesday night a. key state wide office in virginia. the same office that gave rise to ken cuccinelli. the race is close. it seems there are thousands of ballots that went uncounted on election night. we will film you in on the latest on that. we are wondering if history will, indeed, repeat itself with chris christie playing that role. i have thoughts about that. it involves explaining to you what something called a he cume is. you might want to stick around for that. our friend mellissa harris-perry is taking her dedication will pay off. that is ahead. >>> but first, president obama is waking up in miami, florida today on his tour of southern statesch red southern states encouraging republicans to do something he didn't expect he'd have to be doing 17 months ago. it starts in june of 2012. that's when the supreme court issues its long awaited ruling on obam
implemented what president obama wants to do and there's positive results. >> over the course of the next year or two, you're going to have a very big success for affordable health coverage. >> if you had had a moment with president obama, what would your advice be on how to make it right? >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. hope you had a great weekend. two senators from kentucky, mitch mcconnell, who heads up the republicans in the senate, and rand paul, who wants to be the president of the united states, these two senators have been the biggest obstructers and biggest bad-mouthers of obama care anywhere in the country. but look what's happening in their own backyard. this is the pulse center, and this is where mitch mcconnell and rand paul have never been. they have never been here in frankfurt, kentucky. it's an obscure office complex, it's known as building 12, and it's kind of hard to find. but this is where we were this morning. i wanted to go to kentucky to find out how this is working. president obama last week in a speech in boston, massachusetts, talked
. also ahead, on the road again. president obama leaves tonight for a three day fund-raising trip out west. his approval ratings have been plummeting, but he's on track to become the most prolific second term president in history. how? why? >>> plus, holiday weather. a killer storm is hitting the south before turning north just in time for thanksgiving. we'll be live with the forecast. and going for the green. eager entrepreneurs are poised to cash in on newly relaxed state marijuana laws and it's not who you probably think. but we start, though, with that breakthrough deal reached overnight with iran. here are just a few of the nuts and bolts. iran will be getting initial relief from sanctions, essentially bills of dollars in oil money that had been frozen. in exchange, iran agrees to halt what is called high grade urani uranium enrichment. they also cannot install additional centrifuges. those are devices used to enrich uranium. again, this is all a temporary deal. designed to provide a six month window to reach a more comprehensive agreement. i want to go live now to london where j
good advice. big topic around the dinner table tomorrow in america, probably will be obama care. of course, with the uncle across from you who thinks that this has to fail. how do you set things straight with those conservative family members who want to see the law fail, and, of course, still think that president obama was born not in america? >> well, ed, as you know very well, it's very tricky, navigating this thanksgiving day dinner table diplomacy. your obama care-ating uncle, nra uncle, uncle who uses benghazi as a verb. it can get pretty challenging. but when it comes to obama care, the main thing to remember when that particular uncle or brother-in-law tries to goad you into some kind of fight, the only way you win is if you leave thanksgiving and everyone loves each other. you've got to be the liberal, the good guy. you've got to be the peace-maker, full-on jimmy carter. all you've got to say is, look, i know they're having problems, i originally supported single-payer, but president obama took a republican plan made by the republican heritage foundation, implemented by
of important issues that have national implications. issues like obama care, med kaed expansion, immigration doesn't happen in america unless it happens in florida. and, of course, voting rights is on the tip of the tongue of every floridan. the 2014 gubernatorial election is here, it is hugely important. former florida governor, charlie crist, right now is the front runner for the democratic nomination. if he gets the go-ahead, he will be taking on republican governor, rick scott. scott, a self-made guy. he loves to tell people that. worth millions. could be the most radical of all republican governors in the bunch. and he's willing to spend up to $100 million to keep his job. scott kicked and screamed every step of the way on obama care. he refused to set up a state exchange. and so far, he has not expanded medicaid, which has hurt a lot of folks. if scott expanded medicaid, it would provide an estimated 1.2 million low-income floridans with life-saving health care. he's as ruthless as they come, folks. on sunday evening, i had an opportunity to sit down with charlie crist about this, and
president obama's nominees. >> these nominees deserve at least an up or down vote, yes or no. but republican filibusters deny them a fair vote, any vote, and deny the president his team. gridlock has consequences. it's not only bad for president obama, bad for this body, the united states senate, it's bad for our country. >> minority leader, mitch mcconnell, says democrats are creating a crisis to distract attention from obama care. >> millions of americans are hurting because of a law washington democrats forced upon them. what do they do about it? they cook up some fake fight over judges, a fake fight over judges. that aren't even needed. >> our chief congressional correspondent, dana bash, is on capitol hill following the dramatic, dare i say historic developmentans huge ramificat n ramifications. explain what is going on right now in congress. >> reporter: what's going on right now, wolf, as we speak, actually on the senate floor, is the fruits, if you will, of what the democrats tried to do. obviously republicans see it a whole different way. democrats successfully did, which is we're
